Ask Your PA Representative To Vote For Bicycle And Pedestrian Funding

Last week, the PA Senate passed a comprehensive transportation funding bill (Senate Bill 1) that includes the FIRST-EVER dedicated funding for bicycles and pedestrians.

This money will fund projects that will make Pennsylvania roads and communities safer and more accessible for biking and walking.

Now the PA House must pass this $2.5 billion plan. We expect opposition to the bicycle and pedestrian funding portion of the bill, so we need to speak up for it! You can help in two ways:
  1. Call your State Representative and tell them to "adequately fund transportation and include dedicated funding for bicycling and walking - as is found in Senate Bill 1." Feel free to elaborate on why biking and walking is important to you.
  2. Send this e-mail action alert saying the same message.
This is a big opportunity to set a precedent of dedicated bicycle and pedestrian funding in Pennsylvania. We can make it happen if we speak up for it! Please take five minutes and take action today.
